mayor tommy menino and massachusetts governor deval patrick offering support they might need. because bombs are involved, it's it's hard to escape the conclusion this is an act of terrorism. terrorism like any act of human violence has a purpose. setting bombs at the finish line of a popular american event, a celebration of life like the boston marathon is designed to attack the heart of this country's life. hit the people where they're happiest. most at home. most joyous about their times and their country. how many bombs have we seen planted around the world at weddings, or other festive events? or at well-appointed hotels or gorgeous resorts? this is the bull's-eye for the terrorists. hit you where you feel safe so you won't feel safe anywhere. they hit you where you're most at ease in your society so you won't feel at ease ever. this is what we saw today in bosten a the finish line of the marathon. if isn't new. what it is, once again, is here. clint van zandt, was a profiler for the fbi. he's with us now. it's like the two planes hitting the world trade center. once the second hi

. thanks. i mentioned boston mayor tom menino earlier. you perhaps heard governor patrick say that he started his day by visiting the boston mayor in his hospital room. well, there turned out to be no keeping mayor menino down. even though he was in the hospital being treated for a broken leg, even though he has had so many health challenges just since this past winter, including diagnosis of diabetes, and he had some heart trouble, he has decided not to run for re-election, he is, however, the longest-serving mayor in the modern history of boston. he is the number-one booster of that city in this event. he apparently will bring this to you live when this happens, heading toward the microphones to give his own press briefing. and generally just say to the people of boston, "we'll get through this." dean walker, who has been really helpful to us, is part of the universal sports -- another arm of this company -- universal sports network coverage, up there in a production trailer not far from the finish line. if you'd been watching our live coverage, dean heard the first concussion and s
